This giant's face was rarely seen in his films, as he usually played monsters and semi-human creatures that required him to wear mounds of make-up, so few people know that he was a handsome and muscular man.

The character of the Predator in Predator (1987) went through many development stages, including one version that was set up for Jean-Claude Van Damme to play a martial-arts fighting Predator, and finally decided on the crab-like humanoid monster seen in the film. The producers realized much of their human cast were bodybuilders over 6 feet tall (and Van Damme was clearly smaller) and thus they cast the enormous Hall so that the Predator could realistically physically dominate the film's human characters.
